What beat does the drum intro to Led Zepp Rock & Roll start on?

Silly question, I know. But I've never been able to wrap my mind around it.

Three eight notes into the downbeat. Then it’s a Little Richard riff.

This is one of those songs where I can't comprehend counting it. I lose all sense of the accents and flow if I worry about counting. I just know how to play it.

Think of the main riff from "Jailhouse Rock". It also hits on the "+" of 3 and "1"
